The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The trouble with take-home pay

I can definitely relate to this:

I just closed the deal and sold my first fine *cough* art piece. The money from selling my stained glass window is enough to get me an extra month's renó

"Pssst."

Um, enough to cover rent and make life a little easió

"Psst. Over here."

What? Who's there?

"It's your camera, I really could use some more memory. I saw a 128meg card on sale."

No. Later, ok?

"Hell-ooo? Darrrling! It's your wardrobe talking. Is it 1998 again? You really need some new digs, sweetie."

No! You're inanimate objects! You're not supposed to talk! Ahhhh!

About the only way to avoid this is to live in constant denial, which is even less fun than it sounds, but the alternative is five or six digits of debt and eventually throwing yourself upon the mercy of the court.

I mention this because I got my Target Rewards 10-percent-off certificate yesterday, and I could use a new TV for the bedroom.

Dammit. I just got another 20% off coupon from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Shut up, bedroom furniture...

What bothers me is, our new living room furniture has been whispering that our 15-year-old, 19-inch TV just doesn't go with anything, and we need a new 25-incher.
